But more importantly, Badger hockey fans would rather travel to a gimmicky spectacle than actual great hockey games.
There is just lack of hockey interest amongst Wisconsin fans this year. They went from averaging 14,000+ fans at home games a few years ago to just over 10,000 or 11,000 fans this year. It might have something to do with the economy but how does that explain why the basketball team always seems to have sold-out games? No one wants to go see a team that started 1-7-2. The average fan takes that and assumes they aren't very good despite the fact they have a similar record compared to the Goofs since Nov. 30th... Badgers 17-5-5 Goofs 17-5-3 (yes the badgers have played more games, I removed the Alabama-Huntsville games)
